    Unless it's the guest network and the head really needs to play with his Wii at breaktime?

    (Yes, I just wanted to inspire that mental image.)
    If it's a hidden SSID then why not use something a bit stronger encryption wise ( WPA, WPA2 using AES etc )

    On most recent Android releases, it comes as standard. You just need to go into the "Settings" > "Locale and Text" > "Select input Method" and Swype should be there.

    If not, go to Swype | Text Input for Screens and sign up!

    It revolutionises texting/tweeting/emailing, etc!
    Well I don't know what's going wrong, but when I try to open the APK, I get an error message "There is a problem parsing the package", so looks like no Swype for me

    EDIT: Scratch that, I should have read the FAQ (I'm tech minded, I never read instructions!), Skyfire was borking it, downloaded fine with standard browser

    Read the FAQ's? Who the hell does that??? We're techies, we should instantly KNOW how it works!!

    that has given me a decent laugh though!!

    Er, well, originally it was compatibility with old kit... but having just had a natter about it in our office, apparently the one known bit of kit was a teacher's personal laptop that she's since replaced anyway. So they can all knickers now, we'll change it up to WPA2 and break everyone's wireless and then I know that no students will have anything on that they shouldn't have anymore. So tah for the reminder!

    (and if you'd seen our Head, you wouldn't want that image, not at all)
